If it’s date night, party day, or just a slow Sunday, here’s a neat little facial fix-up in a skincare sachet: TheraVine UltraVine Advance Gold Collagen Film, R321 for two.
It’s soaked with plant-based collagen, vitamins A and C, and kojic acid, so it tingles slightly – but it’s the 24ct-gold dust and diamond powder that brighten skin and leave it with a gorgeous, youthful glow.
Puffy under-eyes can drag your mood down with them, but 20 minutes with Elemis Pro-Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Masks , R1 285 for six, will lift both skin and spirits.
These slippery little crescent moons, doused in firming plankton extract and hyaluronic acid, feel instantly refreshing, and help plump weary contours.
While you enjoyed forming them, deep smile lines aren’t much fun! Try Anatomicals Puffy The Eye Bag Slayer – Collagen Under Eye Patches, R199.
They’re infused with collagen and other anti-ageing ingredients to reduce under-eye puffiness and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
